you shouldn't shoot without knowing what's behind your target.
Exactly.

Another thing I notice in alot of the hunting shows is that alot of the hunters don't wear safety devices while climbing. or desending the tree. Not to good an example in my opinion.

This is an occcurance that happens all the time and is a widely (I hate to say it) becoming an accepted shot...
Inthis months release of Rifle mag theirs a pic of an elk skylined top of a hill and the crosshairs of the scope are directly on the elk heart lung area...
I don't know how many animals are uninteintionally wounded or killed by this shot, but when I see a dead doe or illegal buck, cow ,horese etc, dead in the wide open, I beginning to wonder if this wasn't the direct cause of it....
Reguardless Farmcntry keep teaching the way your doing, as frustrating
and upsetting as it is to see, at least I know there is somebody out there
teaching good hunting laws/ethics........

Sorry, don't mean to pick here, but many times I head out for a huntit is still too early to shoot. I don't load the gun until I can see what I am shooting. I know this can be a lot of noise at that crucial hour, but that is just me. My first hard-knock lesson on my very first hunt was watching my cousin load his rifle next to his father's truck in the dark. I am not quite sure how he did it, but the gun went off and put a round through the radiator. This was on the top of the mountain FAR from any service stations. Fortunately, my Dad's truck was there, as well. Thirty years ago and I still think about that every time I load my gun.

The other day I was watching a show where lady shot a skylined bull moose. All I could do was shake my head. I agree that these shows should be a bit more ethical and think about safety first. I don't care how remote you think your hunting spot is, until you can see nothing's behind your animal you don't know. If you get a chance to get a tape of the show, show it to your students and discuss it. Keep doing what you're doing and teach 'em right.
